1. Vision: I started my 2006 Asian games campaign as far back as 2002. The vision of a medal in 2006 is what drove me to train from 2002 till 2006. When I started, it was not clear which event I would be participating or the path to get that medal.
The original vision for iLogo was to organize the fragmented & disorganized business of custom T-Shirts globally. This has kept us going through all challenges.

I've been wanting to write about this topic for long, but because of lack of enough information was refraining to do so.

One of the privileges of being a tech entrepreneur is that I get to use Facebook regularly (while claiming that it is merely part of my job).
Of course, there are ways and more ways to use Facebook.
For the vast majority of users, Facebook is just a fun means of keeping in touch with their friends and whiling away the time. For others, it is a way to reach out to a wide audience and propagate their ideas.
For a few (myself included), Facebook…Continue
